So much for Danny Lee hitting a wall. Despite nine straight days of competitive golf (and counting), the world’s number one ranked amateur finds himself as one of four remaining players in the 108th U.S. Amateur at Pinehurst. Lee’s semifinal match pits him against one of two remaining Georgia Bulldogs–Patrick Reed of Augusta, GA. The other match features Reed’s more heralded teammate, Adam Mitchell, against Drew Kittleson of Florida St.
Lee’s 4&3 quarterfinal win over Oklahoma St. freshman-to-be Morgan Hoffmann on Friday didn’t come without some concern, however. The AP reports:
Lee’s latest dominant performance came despite an injury. His left shoulder was sore for the first five holes after he “clicked” it while practicing his driver roughly 2 hours before his tee time, but said he felt fine after treating it with ice, ibuprofen and a massage.
